The Wiener Symphoniker's Easter Concert on TV

Horizontal Tabs

Info
The televised Easter concert "Spring in Vienna" has been one of the great highlights of the Viennese concert calendar for more than 40 years. With guests of international stature and a colourful bouquet of spirited melodies, the Wiener Symphoniker drive out the winter chill and ring in the vibrant new season. The 2017 concert is a job for the Musical Director. Under Philippe Jordan’s directorship, the flower-garlanded Great Hall of the Wiener Konzerthaus will play host to a diverse programme with a decidedly American flavour. Please note: This concert is presented as part of a cooperation between the Wiener Symphoniker and the Wiener Konzerthaus Society. TV-dates: 17.04.2017, 10.25am on ORF 2 23.04.2017, 8:15pm on ORF III 18.06.2017, 6.25pm on ARTE (short version)
